Secret

from http://butterflycry-.tumblr.com/

There’s just something about Maroon 5 – I’ve always loved their sound and admire how they manage to be one of the few ‘pop’ bands out there with real soul. Their melodies and lyrics are usually extremely vivid: when I listen to their songs I always see something in my mind – certain situations or moments that the lyrics coax into my mind, no matter how occupied I am. It’s almost as if I am watching a music video that was never made.

Cool these engines, calm these jets, I ask you how hot can it get,
And as you wipe of beads of sweat slowly you say, “I’m not there yet”. 

This song in particular has always held a fascination for me. That lazy guitar at the start instantly makes me think of sunset on a hot, sultry, summer day. I tried to echo that same lazy sultriness in the main melody of the song as well as in the backing vocals, which were probably my favourite part of the song to sing.

Enjoy!

  1. I used to like them when they were less mainstream. Moves Like Jagger (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=suRsxpoAc5w) is just too pop and light.

    wow i had forgotten about this! lovely song, and i’m loving the harmonies…! my all-time favourite of theirs though is “Woman”. That song is just soooo smooth. Similar to “Secret”, give it a listen if you haven’t heard it already.

    Keep ’em coming! Fantastic work!

    Have you seen the movie ‘wedding date’? This song is used perfectly.
